The hotel is in a good location within walking distance of the Forbidden City. The staff at the hotel was very nice and very helpful. The breakfast at the hotel was very good and worth adding to your stay. The other restaurant and bar within the hotel was also very good. Beijing is very big but there are many things within walking distance of the hotel.
I was staying in Beijing for the first time and didn't know what to expect in a room. What I got was a great value. Super service, great amenities and clean as a whistle. The room was comfortable with a great bed and comforter. The views from the street side were wonderful. From my 12th floor room I could see the tops of the gate to the Forbidden City and the mountains out to the west of the city. Down below and across from the hotel is a pretty little park and an athletic facility where the kids play basketball and soccer.
Support is excellent. Ada, a staff member in the business office went to extraordinary lengths to make sure I got my Hong Kong from Guangzhou ticket in the mail before I checked out. You can not get they type of service anywhere today.
In addition to the helpful staff, the location turned out to be great for me. I like to walk, and it was nothing for me to walk to a majority of major attractions in the city. The ones I couldn't walk too, I could take one of the two metro lines within 200 meters. I had one tour to the Great Wall that I had to arrange transportation.
This hotel is well suited to business travelers, the room has a comfortable desk area and each morning I'd make myself a cup of coffee and take care of correspondence.
I extended my original reservation two times for a total of weeks because there is a lot of see and I was comfortable
We went early hoping for an early check-in. And yes there was! :) The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful in answering our questions. They also readily helped to get us cabs as it was so hard to flag one down.
Very good location for sightseeing and restaurants. While it bears a traditional Chinese design, it may need some renovation to compete with 5 stars hotels. Staff is not fluent in English, but trying to help. Good hotel. Good price.
An historical district, Dongcheng is home to a concentration of major sights and treasures including Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City (Palace Museum). To the south, discover Wangfujing Street, a famous shopping boulevard that sees mostly foot traffic only. Here, more than 200 old Beijing brands still reign supreme including the Wuyutai Tea House and Shengxifu hat store.
